NEW Death and Taxes 2009 poster

New Death and Taxes infographic for 2009!  Interactive viewer let's you zoom in to see all of the details.
"Death and Taxes:2009" is a representational poster of the federal discretionary budget; the amount of money that is spent at the discretion of your elected representatives in Congress. Basically, your federal income taxes. The data is from the President's budget request for 2009. It will be debated, amended, and approved by Congress by October 1st to begin the fiscal year.

The poster provides a uniquely revealing look at our national priorities, that fluctuate yearly, according to the wishes of the President, the power of Congress, and the will of the people. If you pay taxes, then you have paid for a small part of everything in the poster. 
The Death and Taxes poster from 2007 was my initial post on Cool Infographics, so I'm very excited to see this update.  Now the 2009 version is available to purchase as a poster here.


  1. Does anyone know where to get other infographic posters? All I've found are the typical educational posters and a few additional at historyshots.

  2. Matt, whenever I tag my posts "poster" its either available for purchase or easy to print out as a poster. Click "poster" in the tag cloud on the right side of Cool Infographics and see if that helps.

    Are you looking for something specific?

  3. Thanks, Randy. Using the tags seems pretty obvious now that you point it out.

    No, I'm not looking for anything to specific. I'm putting up posters around my house and like the style (and people's enjoyment & reaction to) of infographics.
